Received disconnect from IP: 2: Too many authentication failures for root

Received disconnect from : 2: Too many authentication failures for root

You are getting this error because your public keys are not saved on the server and it is not prompting for password so the public key authentication is failed, it throws you back on the command prompt with error.


The solution is simple. Either you need to save your public keys on server in authorized_keys file or set PubkeyAuthentication=no in your command. Now it will ask for password.

ssh -o PubkeyAuthentication=no server-IP
Example :
If you want to loginto server whose IP is 192.168.0.10, Run

ssh -o PubkeyAuthentication=no 192.168.0.10
